New Study: UnBreastfed Babies Ain't Shit

********Associated Press, March 2015

A new study out of Holland revealed that babies who were never breastfed or not breastfed by an organic woman for at least three years aren't shit.

"They ain't shit," said Dr. Simon Chrymasonov from the Holland Institute of the Genetic Sciences.

The longitudinal study followed 6,000 mothers and their infants over the course of 40 years and found that those who weren't exclusively breastfed were 25x more likely to have a hotmail email address.

"They ain't shit," Dr. Chrymasonov reiterated in his February 2015 keynote at the International Pediatrics Summit in Switzerland. 

Out of the 6,000 mothers, it was noted that the children who were not breastfeed for at least two years went on to purchase Android devices. In a survey, 70% of them claimed that "a phone is just a phone" and "the Galaxy takes really good photos." 90% of them needed Wifi to send text messages.

85% of breastmilk-deficient females admitted to finding Kim Kardashian "very pretty" and 0% had never attended Coachella.

"Shit: they ain't it," said Dr. Chrymasonov in a sit down interview with NPR's Bob Stein.

The study found that of the adults who were breastfed as children for at least 2.5+ years, 92% considered Ikea furniture unacceptable for someone over 29 years-old. 97% of them would rather summer in Aix en Provence than Paris, and 98% had successfully transitioned from The Body Shop to Crabtree & Evelyn by 35 and could identify a bar of Almond Oil Triple Milled soap by smell. The cleansers of choice for the unbreastfed group of adults included: Axe Shower Gel, Irish Spring, Herbal Essences, and Softsoap with "shea butter."

"Ain't shit, they are," Dr. Chrymasonov said in his Palo Alto Ted Talk last week.

Interestingly, there were notable similarities between the mothers who opted out of breastfeeding or cut it short by several years. Within this group of ladies, 78% of them believed it was OK for newborns to be forward facing on the hospital ride home so they could "enjoy the view." They were 85% more likely to have purchased a Graco carseat on sale.

Non-breastfeeding, or "My Needs First" mothers as they were nicknamed in the research documents to avoid bias, were 96% more likely to confuse "your" and "you're" in Facebook status updates. One researcher attempted to find a correlation between the visible exaggerated slope of their foreheads to their grammar but funding deficiencies halted his work.

There is some encouraging news for mothers who partially breastfeed their children. The study revealed that for every three months of breastfeeding a child experienced after the bare minimum one year, there was an average 15 point increase on the nursed adult's credit score.
